It was said to be commonly performed in ancient Egypt to help both men and women achieve smooth and glowing skin. Today, this cosmetic treatment is still popular and remains everlasting for its cost-effective, safe and quick results.

The chemical peel treatment at IDS Clinic is completed by a professionally trained medical doctor to regenerate the skin. This procedure mainly deals with acne issues as well as to improve mild acne scars and minimise melasma from the consumption of birth controls or pregnancy. If you happen to be looking for ways to reduce the fine wrinkles surrounding your eyes and lips, the chemical peel works great as well!A light peel will cause the skin to whiten with a slight stinging sensation. The medium chemical peel amps up the burning for up to 20 minutes and will leave your skin with a tinge of blue that might last several days after. The deep medical peel requires sedation and will turn the skin either white or grey during the process. To limit the skin’s exposure to acid, this procedure will take no longer than 15 minutes only.

4. LE Privaté Clinic
LE Privaté Clinic’s chemical skin peels work wonderfully at improving and smoothing out the surface of the facial skin. When the chemical solution is applied, it takes away with it all the unwanted blemishes and signs of ageing. Similar to the others, it promotes skin cell renewal and heals skin that has been damaged in many other ways. As compared to medium and deep chemical peels, the superficial chemical peels are the better option as they have a gentler effect and do not result in visible skin peeling, inflammation or significant redness. Plus point, it comes with little or no downtime too!
P.S. The team at LE Privaté Clinic encourages a pre-peel consultation to be booked 3 weeks prior to the actual procedure day. This is for Dr Lew to thoroughly assess your skin and properly prepare the skin for the chemical peel treatment.
